    Sacramento, CA, Feb. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A new report has been published on Innovest Global, Inc. (OTC Pink: IVST). Innovest Global, Inc. is a diversified holding company that focuses on acquiring niche, high-growth businesses that are capable of generating significant annual revenue. The company’s planned subsidiaries operate across telehealth, commercial energy, business-to-business distribution, national call center and auto sales.

    The report provides an overview of Innovest Global, Inc., its subsidiaries, financials, industry analysis and more. The content also covers recent stock market turmoil and U.S. economic progress.

    *Recent Stock Market Sell Off Does Not Reflect Current Macroeconomic Fundamentals*

    The recent stock market turmoil has sent investors scurrying for safety, as major U.S. averages give up all gains for 2018. However, the recent stock market activity has been divergent from the United States’ strong macroeconomic fundamentals.

    The unemployment rate for January 2018 remained unchanged at 4.10%, which is a 17-year low. On the other hand, the U.S. fourth quarter GDP growth came in slightly under forecast at 2.60%. However, this compares to GDP growth of 1.80%, during the fourth quarter 2016. Overall, the economy is continuing to grow and employers are continuing to hire more people. According to, U.S. wage and salary growth saw four straight months of growth between July and November 2017. 

    Rather than the economy being the culprit, the recent market sell off is largely to blame on several factors: Federal Reserve and longest period in history without significant market volatility and healthy correction. 

    The Federal Reserve remains a hurdle for U.S. equities due to the strong economic growth. Unfortunately, as the economy continues to hum along, this will usually result in interest rate hikes in order to keep the growth in check. However, interest rate hikes are bad news for equity investors and the bull market rally. The Fed’s recent announcement and plans to conduct three interest rate hikes in 2018 is certainly not the best news for shareholders in the short term.

    Aside from the Federal Reserve, the stock market had been experiencing one of the longest stretches in its history where market volatility and corrections were absent. This resulted in stark revert to reality, where investors were greeted with soaring market volatility and the steepest correction in several years.

    *Innovest Has Remained Resilient In Recent Market Turmoil Due To Several Key Accomplishments*

    Innovest Global, Inc. has made several key accomplishments to kick off 2018. The company was pleased to recently announce that its commercial energy business, Innovest Energy Group, has begun a major revenue push within its local market across Ohio. The subsidiary even recently won a bid for a “five-figure security-critical update” to a law enforcement facility in Geauga County, OH. 

    In late January 2018, Innovest Global, Inc. announced the acquisition of Call Center Resources, Inc., a national call center with a sterling 30-year history. The call center was generating annual revenues in the low eight-figures at one point in its history and Innovest Global, Inc. hopes it can get the business back to its glory days. 

    Furthermore, the call center will serve as the backbone to the Innovest Global, Inc. holding company model. The call center will not only serve as a point of contact for customer service across its other businesses, but it also allows Innovest to utilize a cost-effective sales resource to help boost revenues.

    Innovest Global, Inc. now has the following subsidiaries:

    · Chagrin Safety Supply (B2B supplier business)
    · Sanavida (telemedicine)
    · Call Center Resources, Inc. (national call center)
    · Innovest Energy Group/Shepherd Energy Solutions (commercial energy)
    · Luxury Auto Dealership (still in due diligence phase)

    During Innovest Global, Inc.’s leadership meeting that took place in January 2018, management provided new information on its telemedicine business, Sanavida. After successful test marketing in late 2017, Innovest Global, Inc. is now preparing the telemedicine platform for commercial launch.

    This would be massive for Innovest Global, Inc., as it not only would be a major revenue generator for the company, but it also is being launched during a time when millions of Americans are beginning to not be able to afford health insurance any longer. Rather than paying sky-high insurance premiums, management sees Sanavida being a much more affordable and viable alternative. 

    Overall, Innovest Global, Inc. has kicked off 2018 on a strong note, as management prepares the company for significant revenue growth this year. Now that the call center and backbone is in place for the holding company model, management can now continue to acquire niche companies that are capable of generating significant annual revenues. The latest announcements prove that management is successfully executing on its vision to build a diversified holding company that is capable of generating strong sales growth.

(MacB), a leading National Security company delivering advanced engineering services, cybersecurity and product solutions, announced today that the company and its business partner, xAssets LLC, has achieved Software Certification for the xAssets Client Version 7.x of the Information Technology Asset Management and Network Discovery Tool (ITAM-ND). The software recently passed the comprehensive certification process issued by the Department of the Air Force for both client and server applications. This certification is a culmination of work by MacB and xAssets technical engineers, project managers, and other experts to meet the exacting standards required by the U.S. Air Force to achieve software certification status.        

    ITAM-ND is now Air Force Network Integration Center (AFNIC) certified, and available on the AF Enterprise Product Library (EPL).

Additionally, it provides an automated means to support 2013 and 2014 Congressional mandates for the DoD to identify and explain the use of software titles, as well as accurately provide an inventory of selected software licenses.

    Below are some key highlights about the newly certified software tool: 

    · Cybersecurity – approved for use on the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet). The 36-month certification provides full life cycle statistical software package (AM) capabilities, including discovery that can stand alone or complement the System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM).
    · Features – simple to install, fast, and easy to use. It’s also highly configurable, has total hardware and software network discovery (agentless inventory), and an affordable solution for cloud or on-premise implementations.
    · HIPAA – meets compliance requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.
    · Version 7.x – the most cutting-edge and flexible ITAM/ND product on the market today.

    The xAssets ITAM-ND helps organizations meet critical ISO 19770 Compliance Standards for discovery networks of all sizes, without application or DLL conflicts or deploying agents. MacB’s technical team will install, configure, train, tailor and sustain the software. The tool includes a Configuration Management Database (CMDB), allowing Hardware Inventory, IT Asset Management, Software Asset Management and Software License Compliance within a single browser application.

    “Through our business agreement with xAssets, we’re excited to offer newly certified Asset Management and agentless Network Discovery functionality to MacB’s DoD and Federal customers, presenting a holistic view of their entire network and the fastest route to fulfilling software license requirements,” said Fred Norman, Senior Vice President and General Manager of MacB’s Mission Systems Group (MSG). “The discovery engine has been optimized for performance in every possible respect so that network operators, IT experts, software asset managers, and end users have access to nuts and bolts layers for a strategic approach to network discovery in small and large complex networks.”

    THE INSURANCE AND THE IoT REPORT: How insurers are using connected devices to cut costs and more accurately price policies This is a preview of a research report from BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. To learn more about BI Intelligence, click here.

    Insurance companies have long based their pricing models and strategies on assumptions about the demographics of their customers. Auto insurers, for example, have traditionally charged higher premiums for parents of teenage drivers based on the assumption that members of this demographic are more likely to get into an accident.

    But those assumptions are inherently flawed, since they often aren't based on the actual behaviors and characteristics of individual customers. As new IoT technologies increasingly move into the mainstream, insurers are able to collect and analyze data to more accurately price premiums, helping them to protect the assets they insure and enabling more efficient assessment of damages to conserve resources.

    A new report from BI Intelligence explains how companies in the auto, health, and home insurance markets are using the data produced by IoT solutions to augment their existing policy pricing models and grow their customer bases. In addition, it examines areas where IoT devices have the potential to open up new insurance segments.

     Here are some of the key takeaways:

    · The world's largest auto insurers now offer usage-based policies, which price premiums based on vehicle usage data collected directly from the car.
    · Large home and commercial property insurers are using drones to inspect damaged properties, which can improve workflow efficiency and reduce their reliance on human labor.
    · Health and life insurance firms are offering customers fitness trackers to encourage healthy behavior, and discounts for meeting certain goals.
    · Home insurers are offering discounts on smart home devices to current customers, and in some cases, free devices to entice new customers.

    In full, the report:

    · Forecasts the number of Americans who will have tried usage-based auto insurance by 2021.
    · Explains why narrowly tailored wearables could be what's next for the health insurance industry.
    · Analyzes the market for potential future insurance products on IoT devices.
    · Discusses and analyzes the barriers to consumers opting in to policies that collect their data.
